Vinicius Tobias is one of the several Real Madrid Castilla players under Carlo Ancelotti’s radar as possible promotions for next season. As a bright young talent for the right-back position, it would not hurt the Italian tactician to give Tobias a run in the first team.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Los Blancos are yet to decide on the youngster’s future. However, they are in no hurry at the moment as they have time until the summer to make a final call.

The 18-year-old arrived in Madrid from Shakhtar Donetsk last April when FIFA permitted players in Ukraine to move away from the country and continue their development in other leagues. Tobias thus signed for Real Madrid on an eighteen-month loan with an optional purchase clause.

Shakhtar have enquired about the possibility of signing him back in the current window if the Merengues do not see him in their plans. However, Florentino Perez & co. have informed the Ukrainian club that they want to keep him at the club and they will reveal their decision on a permanent transfer only in June.

“A month ago we contacted Madrid because we were interested in having him back. We told Madrid that if they didn’t need him, we would take him.

“They told me that they want Tobias until the end of the season and we will make a decision at the end of the season. We get along well with Madrid”, Shakhtar president Sergei Palkin told the media earlier today.

The youngster was called up by Carlo Ancelotti for Real Madrid’s game against Villarreal last week when both Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez were ruled out injured. Despite having Tobias at his disposal, Ancelotti preferred to trust Nacho Fernandez at right-back.

Tobias is yet to make his first-team debut for Real Madrid, but he has registered four assists in 23 matches for Castilla, while he also set up one goal in three matches for the Under-19 side in the UEFA Youth League.

A young talent with immense potential, Tobias can be a wise addition to the ranks and Real Madrid would do well to sign him permanently.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
